Pre-release

@Frederik-D-Weber Frederik-D-Weber released this Apr 8, 2019 · 7 commits to master since this release

COsleep v0.2.0 on with binaries and source compiled in a Debian Live USB image version 9.8.0 and xfce as a desktop environment for 64bit CPUs , wit a real-time kernel, all included.
Use at own risk.
Download here the debian-custom-cosleep.iso

Put put the image on a USB stick of at least 4 GB size (8 GB recommended), the faster the write and read speeds, the better.

FROM LINUX
use dd
e.g. in almost all linux distros with a command similar to
dd if=debian-custom-cosleep.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M; sync
MAKE SURE /dev/sdX is your acutal USB drive, otherwise you might loose all you notebooks data. Also make sure the device is not mounted. if you made sure, then put a sudo in front of the command to make it work.

FROM WINDOWS
Use Win32DiskImager, download from here
Install and open Win32DiskImager, select your USB stick and check that it is the right drive letter OTHERWISE YOU LOOSE ALL THE DATA ON THE WRONG STICK.
Open the image file, by selecting files with the ending . in the file dialog that pops up, then find your debian-custom-cosleep.iso file, and finally press the "Write" button. Now wait and hope it worked.

NOTES:
The image is both UEFI and BIOS (legacy) bootable.
Just plug in your PC/Notebook/Laptop and boot from the USB stick you created with the image.

Importantly, many modern Notebooks and PCs require you to manually change your BIOS settings to boot from an USB stick, e.g. either by including the USB devices in the allowed boot sequence (before your actual hard drive for example) or by additionally disabeling some BIOS security features that do not allow to boot from "unauthorized" USB sticks (I am sure an exception here would not compromise your security by much). If you do not get it to boot, ask your closest PC nerd, or ask the internet that is full of answers in this regard.
